At HYCF, we are dedicated to helping the underserved communities of Malawi by providing the necessary resources to meet the basic needs of living.
Our main mission is to bridge the gap in gender inequalities in the undeserved communities of Malawi through the empowerment and capacity building of women and girls, data collection about gender discrimination and violence, and supporting more equitable economic and social opportunities for women.
Who We Are
Helping You Community Forum is a registered Non-Government Organization based in Karonga, Malawi, Southeastern Africa. As an organization based in Malawi, we have seen the issues that families struggle dealing with gender inequalities and exposure to HIV/AIDs to pushing themselves to extreme conditions to meet basic necessities.
We strive to work with communities to foster change and through the generosity of donors and our wonderful team of volunteers, we are doing just that!
